I'm ready for autumn :D

It's been a hot one this year, and I'm definitely already in the mood for the crispness of autumn, and what little color change we get down here.  Which isn't much.  So, I've decided to make my own. :D

I made this card (blank inside, for the time being) to enter into this week's challenge at SweetStamps, which was to use a stamp for a background.

I spritzed some parchment-textured cardstock with orange and green glimmer mists, then stamped the alternating corners with a stamp from the inkadinkado Foliage Trails set, stamped in pumpkin stazon ink.  Then I cut the pumpkin using the cottagecutz filigree pumpkin, placed it on a scalloped oval punched from a lighter shade of parchment cardstock, and used blending chalks to color the scallops.  The pumpkin and oval are glued together, then attached to the base of the card with some foam to raise them up just a bit.
